The iPhone Dev-Team is out with a new update for redsn0w jailbreakers on Windows who are experiencing errors with older builds. The Team is also proud to inform fans that the ultrasn0w unlock tool will be compatible with iOS 6 jailbreaks tomorrow.
Dev-Team leader MuscleNerd tweets to his 368K followers that “redsn0w 0.9.15b3 fixes the pesky ‘2601’ error for Windows restores. Saves iPad4 and mini blobs too.”
As usual, the hacker includes a shortened link that takes users to the Dev-Team blog, where more details are dished out.
Such as the fact that “Version 0.9.15b3 fixes the redsn0w ‘error 2601’ that Windows users were seeing using the Restore button,” as well as “a related Windows iTunes error 14 for stitched files.”
The Team asks users to note that if they have a baseband they should “probably avoid stitching and simply use redsn0w’s native Restore (not iTunes).”
New-generation iPad owners are also in luck. The updated redsn0w can help them preserve data usable for future hacking.
“Those lucky recipients of new iPad minis and iPad4s on Friday can use this redsn0w to save your 6.0 blobs off to Cydia,” Dev-Team reports.
Users are instructed to connect their new device first, turn it on, and then use redsn0w’s Extras->SHSH Blobs->New and point it at the iOS 6.0 restoration file (IPSW).
The blog entry ends with a tidbit for iOS 6 jailbreakers.
“Expect an ultrasn0w compatibility update for iOS 6.0 by Friday (mostly useful for 3GS old-bootrom users who are currently enjoying the untethered 6.0 jailbreak!). Same baseband support as with 5.x,” says the Dev-Team.
Ultrasn0w provides carrier unlocks for devices that have already been jailbroken. Unfortunately, only some iPhone 3GS owners are able to reap the benefits of an untethered jailbreak.
